SEE ANYTHING? A construction worker was struck Monday by stray gunfire at an Englewood apartment complex, said authorities who were searching for the shooter.
The innocent bystander was struck by at least one bullet deliberately fired through the window of a second-floor apartment at the Rock Creek Terrace Apartments between Routes 4 and 95 around 10 a.m., responders said.
Family members were home at the time, but the worker -- who was part of a crew working there -- was the only one injured, they said.
The victim underwent successful emergency surgery at Hackensack University Medical Center for an injury what wasn’t considered life-threatening. Deputy Police Chief Gregory Halstead said.
Detectives from the Bergen County Prosecutor's Major Crimes Unit and Englewood police were investigating.
Anyone who might have seen something or has surveillance video or information that could help identify the shooter, is asked to contact the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office at (201) 646-2300 or Englewood PD: (201) 568-2711.
